Once known for peacekeeping, Canada is becoming a militarized nation whose apostles--the "new warriors"-- are fighting to shift public opinion. Unpacking the ominous campaign to change a nation's defintions of itself, Warrior Nationa is an essential read for those concerned by the relentless effot to conscript Canadian history.
Author Ian McKay is an award-winning author and Professor of  History at Queen's University; Jamie Swift is also a Kingston author of numerous books.

This event is co-sponsored by: Between the Lines Books; Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives; Citizens for Public Justice;; The Council of Canadians; and the Workers History Museum
